Note: Large medical complexes are often counted more than once. For example, if a medical complex has 4 or 5 different medical units, they may be listed independently as different medical locations and would each get counted independently toward the total hospitals count.
* Numbers include hospitals on Long Island and New York City's 5 boroughs only.
